Neil Gaiman and Hank Kanalz talk Amazon

AMAZON’s OMNIVORACIOUS BLOG posted an exclusive interview with writer Neil Gaiman, where amongst other things, he discusses the new digital availability of SANDMAN. So what’s his personal favorite volume of the iconic series? “Probably ‘A Game of You,’ because it's most people's least favourite volume, and I love it all the more for that,” Gaiman revealed. Yesterday, we announced the new DC Entertainment storefront on Amazon.com. This news came following the announcement a few weeks back that 100 titles spanning all DC Entertainment publishing imprints – DC Comics, Vertigo & MAD – would be available digitally exclusively on the new Amazon Kindle Fire. “The store is an aggregator of DC Comics digital and print titles,” Hank Kanalz, SVP of Digital, told PUBLISHERS WEEKLY. “It will have more in print than the 100 graphic novels, Amazon has the entire DC Comics backlist.” “It exposes all our new material to 144 million Amazon customers," he continued to NEWSARAMA. "They've built a store for us. We're on their commercials. We're in their collateral material. It kind of blows the doors wide open."
